The caption for this photo that dates to the first half of the 20th century reads: “U.S.S. Akron - Warship of the Skies. This mighty dirigible, built for the United States Navy, was commissioned on Navy Day, October 27, 1931.” If placed along a street, it would extend lengthwise over two city blocks, and upward to a ten-story building. A section of the control car is shown in the small picture.
